Weekly Goals Link Party 5-20

I can't believe May is over halfway over. This year is flying by.

I am so glad I can eat real food again lol. I am oversharing all about the USANA Reset cleanse I did last week tomorrow, so hold tight just one more day :D

Lets recap how I did this week!

1. Try Something New- This week's Mini Challenge for the 10 Week Challenge was to switch up your work out routine and try something new! I tried out Hot Yoga and I have to say I loved it. I was a little nervous because I get claustrophobic if I can't breathe cold air (think head under the blanket) and the room was really uncomfortable for me at first. I fended off a minor hyperventilating attack (don't hate, I am weird) but I pushed through it and I am glad I did.

2. Don't Skip a Workout- I did pretty good on this one too! I am going to call it a success, but I didn't work out on Wednesday. I reactivated an old back injury and I was pretty immobile on Wednesday (so much so I called into work). I have to remember to take care of myself and not push through the pain sometimes. Duly noted :D I am feeling much better now, still taking it easy, but I really kicked ass at the gym this week. I can't wait to tell you all about the Denver's Healthiest Companies Competition on Friday.  Here is a photo from their Facebook to whet your appetite :)

I am in the middle, on my knees lol

3. Don't Cheat on the USANA Reset. I am proud to say I didn't cheat, and I can't wait to tell you all about it tomorrow :D

This week's goals!

This week's "10 Week Challenge" mini goal is to drink lots of water. I am pretty good at this during the week, but on the weekends I have a hard time getting in my recommended amount. There are lots of different sources that tell you how much you should drink, so google to see what you think you should do, but I try to stay between 64 oz (8, 8 oz glasses) and 128 oz (a gallon) a day. I know that's a wide range, but I have heard both. If I am working out, I definitely get a full gallon in a day. 

This is the last week of the Denver's Healthiest Companies Challenge and I want to win. I want to win for my company and I want to win for me. I am a pretty competitive person so this challenge really has me pumped. My plan is to hit it hard until the end of the comp on Thursday so I can really say I gave it my all. Then I want to take Friday off as a rest day, and work out a schedule to get back to my normal work out routine. These two weeks are not even close to normal (3 a days? lol) so I need to get back to a normal schedule.

I wont lie to you, Saturday wasn't my healthiest day. I was so excited to eat delicious food after the cleanse and we had friends over for my famous Sloppy Tacos (don't expect a recipe, my healthy blog would be shut down haha). I did pace myself and I didn't over eat, but I didn't pay much attention to making good choices either. My goal this week is to get back on track with eating, and to not fall off the wagon. 

Making goals this week? Making small achievable weekly goals are the stepping stones to success! Link them up with me for some extra accountability!

  1. Great job! Joining you in drinking more water - I do great during the work day, but like you not as well on the weekends. Have a great week!

  2. Definitely one of my goals this week is to stay on track... the last couple of days I've been eating anything and everything in sight (thank you PMS!). Your goals are very similar to mine this week!

  3. Great job on the goals. I've never tried the hot yoga, but would love to sometime. I may need to look up some studios soon. My goal is to drink tons of water this week to flush my system. Have a great week!

  4. Way to be the only chick who took up your company on that class (in that picture, at least)!

    Also, thanks for sharing your hot yoga experience. I think it sounds interesting, but I've never sought it out and I didn't even think about the claustrophobia element--I'm totally the same way about needing to breathe cold air. That's not weird, in my book--that's just good survival instincts! :)

  5. I'm loving the Weekly Goals posts! Reminds me to set goals and try to achieve them and if I don't, I can start all over on Monday!

  6. Great job! I need to check out that hot yoga stuff... although I've never done ANY yoga, hot or cold.

  7. Wow! Way to stick with your goals, even the cleanse which sounded super tough. You're one motivated girl!

  8. Sloppy tacos are scandalous! Only thing that saves me is that corn tortillas don't exist here! Look great Sis!


I would love to hear from you! Have something to say? Say it here!
